(NaturalNews) I'm thrilled to bring you this announcement today: We've collected donations from a few health supplement companies and combined them with some early earnings from our involvement with Moxxor to create a $5,000 nutritional grant fund. The non-profit Consumer Wellness Center is now announcing five $1,000 nutrition grants to schoolteachers or school administrators who can use the money in innovative ways to enhance the nutritional education of schoolchildren.

Details on the program are available at: http://www.consumerwellness.org/NutritionalG...

This is just the beginning of a new era for NaturalNews, where our involvement with Moxxor is allowing us to raise the funds needed to pursue truly important initiatives in children's nutrition, health freedom and public education. If you're interested in learning more about Moxxor, or joining the NaturalNews Moxxor team to help support our efforts, read the details here: https://www.naturalnews.com/024629.html or contact an existing NaturalNews team member here: https://www.naturalnews.com/moxxor-informatio...

In 2009, we plan to greatly expand this grant program and even launch new programs that support the nutrition of expectant mothers. I personally serve as the volunteer director of the Consumer Wellness Center (which means I earn nothing from this position), and my aim is to ultimately raise millions of dollars to spend in support of prenatal nutrition and the nutritional health of children.

It's all part of the 7 Principles of Mindful Wealth I've outlined in a report of the same name, which you can find here: https://www.naturalnews.com/Report_Mindful_We...

Those principles state that redistributing wealth in mindful ways is just as important as accumulating wealth in mindful ways. If we are to be productive contributors to a better society, we must take part in the conscious redirection of money to important social causes that help uplift our fellow citizens.

While $5,000 seems a relatively small amount compared to the billions spent on advertising by junk food companies, soda companies and dishonest drug companies, it's a step in the right direction. Notably, this amount will be increased as we are able to raise more funds through Moxxor or other sources.

I thank you all for your continued support of NaturalNews, and I especially thank those who are part of our Moxxor team that's already creating health and wealth abundance for more than 1,000 NaturalNews readers. Here at NaturalNews, we remain dedicated to protecting your health freedoms and expanding nutritional literacy around the world. Yes, Big Pharma and the FDA want Americans to remain nutritionally illiterate, but we are working hard to teach people how to prevent and reverse disease using the natural medicines found in foods and herbs, and we will continue to empower consumers with truthful information about the healing power of nutrition.

Here's the press release we've posted at the Consumer Wellness Center (www.ConsumerWellness.org)

The non-profit Consumer Wellness Center has teamed with NaturalNews.com to announce a $5,000 nutrition grant program to aid schoolchildren. The program will offer five grants of $1,000 each to school educators or administrators who wish to develop innovative uses for the funds that will support the nutritional education of schoolchildren.

The Consumer Wellness Center is now accepting proposals for the grants. The deadline for applying is November 29, 2008 and details on applying for the grants are available at: http://www.consumerwellness.org/NutritionalG...

The Consumer Wellness Center (CWC) is headed by executive director Mike Adams, a consumer health advocate who also serves as the editor of NaturalNews.com, a hugely popular natural health news and education website. The aim of the CWC is to promote nutrition as a way to prevent disease and enhance human health and longevity. It focuses primarily on prenatal nutrition and children's health issues.

Funds for this program have been provided by donations from the Global Healing Center (www.GlobalHealingCenter.com), Boku Superfood (www.BokuSuperfood.com), Health Products Distributors, Inc. (www.IntegratedHealth.com) and Magnetic Clay Baths (www.MagneticClay.com). Additional funds have also been raised by NaturalNews' involvement with Moxxor, a direct sales company offering a potent marine omega-3 supplement combined with an income opportunity. Mike Adams has donated fifty percent of his net proceeds from Moxxor to help fund health freedom and health education programs, including this nutritional grant program from the CWC.

By offering these nutritional grants, Adams hopes to see schoolteachers and administrators creating innovative ways to help children learn about and embrace healthier eating habits. Success stories will be published on www.NaturalNews.com and a second, expanded round of nutrition grants is planned for 2009.

Adams is a vocal critic of junk food marketing to children and the U.S. government's dishonest nutritional recommendations which he describes as being strongly influenced by the food industry's profit motives rather than solid nutritional science. He is strongly against the use of psychiatric drugs to medicate children that simply need healthier eating habits, and he opposes mandatory vaccination programs that inject teens with potentially dangerous chemicals. He also supports the banning of all junk food and soda advertising, and the removal of all junk food and soda vending machines from public schools.

The Consumer Wellness Center is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization.

The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.
